COLUMBUS, Ohio -- Braxton Miller had surgery on his shoulder and will be limited through spring practices, Ohio State announced Friday afternoon.

According to team spokesman Jerry Emig, the senior quarterback underwent a "minor, outpatient surgery on his right shoulder" Friday morning at the Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center.

Miller, who came back for his final season in Columbus after flirting with the idea of possibly entering the NFL draft, helped lead the Buckeyes to a 12-2 record in 2013. The Big Ten Offensive Player of the Year threw for 2,094 yards, 24 touchdowns and seven interceptions. He also rushed for 1,068 yards and 12 touchdowns.

In the team's loss to Clemson in the Orange Bowl on Jan. 3, Miller suffered several hits and admitted they affected his ability to throw the football against the Tigers.

During the men's basketball team's game against Northwestern Wednesday, Miller received the Chicago Tribune's Silver Football award which is given to the Big Ten's best player.

Here's the official release from the school:

"Ohio State quarterback Braxton Miller had minor, outpatient surgery on his right shoulder this morning at the Ohio State University Medical Center. He will be limited in his activities throughout spring drills, which start Tuesday, March 4 and commence with the LiFE Sports Spring Game, Presented by Nationwide, April 12 at 1:30 p.m. in Ohio Stadium."
